Director J.J. Abrams’ latest film, “Super 8,” comes out this Friday, but what about the highly-anticipated sequel to his 2009 take on “Star Trek”? Will it still be released next summer, as planned?

“I’m not so sure, but I know that we’re trying,” Abrams told CNN on Sunday at the press junket for “Super 8.” “We’re working on the script and story and doing everything we can to make it well. I would just so much rather make a movie that’s worth people’s time than make a movie that’s on time.”

The sequel is currently set for a June 29, 2012 release. Abrams has plenty on his plate, including the upcoming TV shows “Person of Interest” and “Alcatraz,” and he reiterated that he wants the next “Star Trek” to be a worthy sequel.

“I’m not inclined to push it. I’m inclined to make a movie that’s good and if it works out in that timetable then we’ll all be thrilled,” he said. “If it doesn’t, when the movie comes out it’ll be worth the wait.”

One can only assume that there will be no appearances by Captain Kirk’s arch-enemy Khan in this “Star Trek 2.”

    THANK YOU, Mr. Abrams! Now let’s hope the studio listens and agrees to push back the release date. Can’t wait for the next one — whenever it comes out! 🙂

    Okay, just read on MSN yesterday that it may be Christmas 2012 or even sometime in 2013 before the next Star Trek film would be in theaters. Argh!
